Richard came to us from The Wheatley School in Old Westbury, N.Y., where he was involved in journalism and dramatics. At Princeton he majored in politics, ate independently, and devoted substantial time and effort to WPRB, including becoming its station manager and chairman of its board of directors. He later earned an MBA from Harvard Business School, and lived in the Boston area for many years, ending up in Southern California.
We had very little contact with Richard over the years but we know that he pursued a career in business, including serving as director of planning and engineering at Apollo Computer Corp., in Chelmsford, Mass. At the time we arrived at Princeton, WPRB was involved in a debate on whether to invest in stereo technology. Richard led the station to adopt it, putting the station ahead of much of the industry and of college stations in particular. Classmates have provided stories about his perpetual willingness to help them with their projects and endeavors.
He leaves no relatives, so we will end with a fond farewell to someone who was always gracious in his advice and encouragement to others.
